How To Land Tarpon On A Paddle Kayak (no rudder).

Took the Wilderness Systems Tarpon 140 out for a free sleigh ride. The Tarpon have been giving free tows lately so I figured that I would do a video about how to handle the big Herrings on a standard paddle kayak without even a rudder. A kayak really doesn't give much resistance so a decent size Tarpon can pretty much pull it with ease. I go through some basic techniques to use to land one of the big boys. Hope it helps.
